JavaScript for Modern Web Development is a 4 day, extensive training course specifically for JavaScript developers with intermediate-level skills who wish to move on to master modern JavaScript development.

You will learn in-depth fundamentals of the JavaScript language, going far beyond knowing how to use JavaScript to build web pages. You will master the core concepts in programming with JavaScript including; types, objects and object-oriented programming, patterns for how to design and construct your JavaScript programs, and newer features in the language from the ECMAScript 5.1 and 6 specification. Throughout the course you will learn the nuts and bolts of the JavaScript language that you can use to grow as a professional.

Learn From Highly Skilled Professionals
Take this grand opportunity to be trained by Senior Software Engineer and instructor Troy Miles and Microsoft MVP, LA.Net VP and SoCal Code Camp Organizer, Hattan Shobokshi. Troy and Hattan are 2 of the most highly respected and recognized technical minds in the LA tech community!

Why Should I Learn Advanced JavaScript?
If you work as a front-end developer or you plan to develop JavaScript applications, libraries, or frameworks, it is essential that you understand the following advanced JavaScript topics, because you will not be able to develop complex JavaScript applications without knowing them.

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

• Create an object-oriented JavaScript program

• Structure your programs to make use of encapsulation where needed

• Write JavaScript using best coding practices

• Make use of patterns to structure your code

• Use and understand advanced techniques such as closures and recursion

• Obtain and utilize information about the environment in which JavaScript is running

• Understand and Implement code minification and compression, loading strategies, and dependency management

• Understand and utilize advanced functions: callback functions, bind, curry, IIFE (Immediately Invoked Function Expression)

You’ll practice these concepts by completing labs and small projects. View full class syllabus here (http://codedistrict.io/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/4_Day_JS_Training_Class.pdf).
